Our sectors

Our market-leading private equity team provides efficient and commercial advice based on our deep understanding of the sector and broad industry expertise.



Our private equity specialists can advise across the entire life cycle of the asset class, from fund formation, through investment, to exits and beyond. With a multi-disciplinary team, we advise on all facets of private equity and are regularly instructed to act for clients on many of the highest-profile and most prestigious funds and transactions.

Our team is substantial and includes more than 40 talented individuals dedicated to private equity, many drawn from prominent onshore law firms. Our group is distinguished by its ability to handle complex, cross-border matters, while being both responsive to our clients’ needs and able to adapt swiftly as their requirements change. We reinforce this with a rigorous knowledge-sharing strategy and a market-leading lawyer development programme.

The expertise in our group extends across our international network of offices, with significant bench strength throughout our global team. Significantly, our lawyers are plugged in to changes and developments in the private equity industry. We have representation on key industry bodies and are directly involved in shaping regulatory reform in our jurisdictions, enabling us to employ the most innovative structures in the market.

Advising on the laws of the BVI, Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Jersey, we match the most appropriate jurisdiction to a client's particular situation. This flexibility and reach means we deliver the most relevant service and advice, all through our partner-led teams.
